GOLDFEATHER is a Brooklyn-based folk music band-meets contemporary classical ensemble, with a dash of cabaret for flavor. Led by native Minnesotan singer and violinist Sarah Goldfeather, Goldfeather's music has been described as "full of light and life" (The Current, Minnesota Public Radio), "distinctive...whimsical" (The Boot) "poignant...striking and laudable" (The Deli Magazine), with "lush, dynamic collective of sound," "striking intensity" (Elmore Magazine) and "astonishing musicianship" (Impose Magazine), and "[the] most musically talented ensemble ever" (Pen's Eye View). Goldfeather's music explores unusual melodies garnished with three-part harmonies against a rich indie-folk-pop backdrop. Sarah and her fearless conservatory-trained five-piece band - Dylan McKinstry (mandolin/voice), Katie Martucci (guitar/voice), Nathan Koci (accordion/banjo/voice) and Pat Swoboda (double bass) - have collective musical backgrounds in almost every genre imaginable, all of which factor into Goldfeather's unique sound. Performance highlights include the 2016 Ecstatic Music Festival and Mata Interval Series in New York, which was featured on WQXR, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago presented by Eighth Blackbird, the Times Two Series in Boston, and a monthly residency at Barbés in Brooklyn. Goldfeather's first full-length album, Patchwork Quilt, was released in September 2016, and they put out a 2014 EP, Goldfeather (released under their previous moniker, Sarah Goldfeather).
Frontman and songwriter Pete Lanctot leads his amorphous cast of Stray Dogs with avant garde fiddler, Ginger Dolden. Pete Lanctot and the Stray Dogs takes form as an acoustic duo, as an electric five piece, and everything in between. Lanctot’s narrative songwriting has been likened to artists such as The Carter Family, Townes Van Zandt and “a backwoods Nick Cave,” and is firmly rooted in blues, folk, country, and experimental music, offering pinhole views into the lives of characters that range from real to mythological.
